LOTD: MAC Fresh Brew and Spite Lipglass, It's National Lipstick Day!
I'ts National Lipstick Day and although its pouring rain in New Jersey (I actually love rain but it keeps me home), what a wonderful day today is! Lipstick is my expression, it is my daily joy, and baby let me tell you...I'm more than happy to celebrate a day dedicated to it. So for this lovely day, I decided to take it back to one of my very 1st MAC lipsticks. I remember being in my freshman year of college going into Macy's and almost gagging at all the pretty colors. My first 3 lipstick purchases were Pink Nouveau, Ruby Woo, and Fresh Brew. I remember being angry because the MAC associate kept trying to convince me that those colors were too bright for a lady of my complexion. I'm an NW47 and he claimed that I'd look much better in creme de la femme which is pretty but frosty and very mature looking (to this day I've never purchased creme de la femme because of his snotty attitude). Luckily, I went with my gut, ignored him, purchased chestnut lip liner and OmG I just knew I was hot stuff. I loved Freshbrew! It was glossy, easy to wear, and just plain pretty. So in celebration of National Lipstick Day I bring you: Freshbrew.
Freshbrew is a greyed brown. It really does remind me of creamed coffee and it is a great nude option for women of all skin tones. Its really PRETTY lined with either of these 3 liners but Im sure any deeper brown liner would work.
I also like to pair Freshbrew with Spite Lip glass which is a plummy nude that just compliments the lipstick perfectly. This is what the combo looks like on me paired with chestnut lip liner. Chestnut gives it a warmer appearance but when I want a cooler look, I pair Freshbrew and Spite with Coffee. When I want only a slight transition from skin to lip I use Cocoa. Isn't Freshbrew just a cutie! Happy National Lipstick Day!
